Fall Festival of Storytelling and Parade of Pumpkins

Parade of Pumpkins

Henry Arts Alliance Parade of Pumpkins is an opportunity to promote arts and literacy in the community. Every year since 2003, local artists and businesses are asked by the Alliance to pick a storybook character and paint a pumpkin featuring that character. Pumpkins painted in the past include characters from Monster’s Inc., Cat in the Hat, Pete the Cat, Sponge bob Square Pants, and many, many more. The 2018 Parade of pumpkins will be on display mid September at Henry Piedmont Hospital then will move to the McDonough Library mid October for the storytelling event on October 13th.
